Description

City Pages' Description

From the moment you step inside the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and stand beneath the Chilhuly glass shaped like a twisted sun, it's obvious this isn't your average gallery. It's easy to loose an entire day winding your way through this museum -- past marble sculptures, art by names like Van Gough and Monet, through period rooms, and past native American bead work. The MIA features exhibits from virtually every part of the world, and every period in history, but it's more than just a galley; hosting frequent lectures, films, tours, and other events, the MIA is rooted in education of the arts. If you find yourself hungry, there is an on-site cafe, but it's hard to tear yourself away from all the beauty inside these walls. Oh, don't forget: the MIA is free daily.

Tips from foursquare

  • HISTORY on 04/19/10

    First founded in 1889, the museum features an encyclopedic collection of approximately 80,000 objects spanning 5,000 years of world history and an especially strong collection of Asian art.

  • City Pages on 02/24/11

    Voted Best Museum in 2010 by City Pages. General admission is always free, and special attractions often follow suit.

  • Mpls.St.Paul Magazine on 11/30/10

    The MIA has been cultivating its permanent Asian art collection, which spans 17 cultures, for more than 90 years. It's definitely worth at least 17 chunks of your time.

  • Ren R. on 07/28/09

    Check out the marble sculpture "Veiled Lady" by Raffaelo Monti. It's stunning!

  • Niqui R. on 08/30/11

    It's free and it's a nice place to walk around on a day off. The sculpture garden is also right there.
